  1. I have an 8800GTS-640 in my Server2008 system (dual boot with Windows XP-64). I'm trying to remember which drivers I used. Looking at NVidia's driver download page, they do have Server 2003 (x64) drivers and I think I used those.

  4. I assume you're placing the graphics card into slot 4 on the server?
    What graphics card are you using?
    What OS is the HP workstation running?
    Does the HP Workstation have a full PCI-Ex16 slot?
